The tale of Canadian Police and a speeding ticket . . .

Two RCMP Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on Highway 97, just north of Kelowna BC.
One of the officers was using a hand-held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the city. The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing.
The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.
Just then a deafening roar over the tree tops on Highway 97 revealed that the radar had in fact, locked on to an RCAF CF-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise in the area.

Back at RCMP Headquarters in Kelowna the RCMP Superintendent fired off a complaint to the Base Commander of the CF-18's in Cold Lake Alberta for shutting (actually frying it) down the Highway Patrol's Radar.

The reply came back in true Royal Canadian Air Force style:
"Thank you for your letter . . .
"You may be interested to know that the tactical computer on the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down."

"Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment's location."
"Fortunately, the Air Force pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, and quickly responded to the missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position on the side of Highway 97. The bottom line is "your guys were lucky they didn't get their doors blown off!

"The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when swearing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech."
"Staff Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left molar. It appears the filling is loose.
Also, the snap is broken on his holster."
If you need any more details, please don't hesitate to call.

Kind Regards

Sounds similar to the US Navy ship approaching an 'enemy vessel', and warning they'll fire unless they change course... and finding out it was a a lighthouse... :D
